NASBLA is announcing a new course verification opportunity for providers of on-water skills training for recreational power or human-propelled boating courses. Successful completion will include the award of a uniquely numbered verified course mark indicating, “The content of this course conforms to the American National Standard for on-water skills as verified through an independent third-party assessment process.”
Recognized by the American National Standards Institute as American National Standards, both the On-Water Power and On-Water Human-Propelled standards identify fundamental skills that entry-level recreational boat operators should be able to demonstrate after receiving instruction. The standards are freely available for voluntary application by organizations providing recreational boating instructional programs. For a limited time, this new third-party course verification process is provided at no-cost under funding provided by the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund administered by the U.S. Coast Guard.
